University to host VET Festival

VET Festival, a two-day conference and music festival organised by Supervet Professor Noel Fitzpatrick, is taking place at the University of Surrey on 5 and 6 September.

Conceived and developed by Noel Fitzpatrick, CEO at Fitzpatrick Referrals and Professor of Veterinary Orthopaedics at the University of Surrey, the VET Festival will bring together a ‘dream team’ of veterinary professionals and human medical specialists from all over the globe. 

The professional development event has been designed for companion animal vets, vet nurses and associated professionals, and will include a unique line-up of 20 speakers who are world-class in their field and who will stimulate debate and discussion around key clinical areas.

Lectures on orthopaedics, oncology and soft tissue surgery, neurology and veterinary nursing will be delivered in the main 1,000 seat marquee, with further lectures being held in small breakout tents. Surrounding the marquee will be The VET Festival Village featuring CPD exhibitors with street food stalls and a variety of entertainment offering fun for all the family.

Mike and the Mechanics will headline the evening's ‘One Life, One Medicine’ concert. The ‘One Life, One Medicine’ concert is being held in support of The Humanimal Trust, the UK’s first charity to further the principles of One Medicine and with the aim of progressing clinically relevant healthcare.

The festival atmosphere, marquee lectures and evening music programme sets the VET Festival apart from other Veterinary CPD events and promises to be an informative and fun event for all.
